Kucinich Sues House Cafeteria

Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) is taking on Washington, over a sandwich: He’s suing the House cafeteria for an olive pit in his sandwich that he says caused dental damage. Kucinich is seeking $150,000 for “permanent and oral injuries requiring multiple surgical and dental procedures.” According to his lawsuit, "Said sandwich wrap was unwholesome and unfit for human consumption in that it was presented to contain pitted olives, yet unknown to plaintiff, contained an unpitted olive or olives which plaintiff did not reasonably expect to be in the food prepared for him, and could not visually detect prior to consumption.”
